History

Global Advance was founded in 1990 by Dr. David Shibley. In the 1980s, God put a vision and burden in his heart to provide encouragement, resources, and training for frontline pastors in destitute nations of the world. Global Advance became a friend and advocate for indigenous pastors and church planters worldwide, challenging them to be catalysts for fulfilling the Great Commission.

Since 1990, Global Advance has provided indigenous training and ministry encouragement for more than 850,000 frontline leaders in 110 nations. Two training centers have been built and numerous strategic partnerships developed with hundreds of churches and ministries.

In 2000, the Global Advance Ambassador Network was formed, and is now comprised of hundreds of individuals, churches, ministries, and businesses who work together to equip leaders globally.

In 2004, Global Advance launched Marketplace Missions with the goal to awaken kingdom vision and sharpen the skills of Christian entrepreneurs and professionals throughout the developing world. Thousands of business leaders partner with Global Advance Marketplace Missions through training conferences, business networks, economic development, mentoring, and ministry.

In 2010, Global Advance launched The Esther Initiative to encourage and empower women in underserved nations to be difference-makers in their spheres of influence. From this initiative national prayer networks have been birthed and multitudes of women are being ignited to impact their families, churches, communities, and nations with the gospel.

In 2014, Global Advance acquired Alpha Relief to provide a channel of support, relief aid, and development to Christians facing extreme persecution in many parts of the world.

In 2015, Global Advance launched the NextGen Engagement initiative to engage young adults in the global church. The purpose of this initiative is to resource and encourage NextGen leaders as they realize their generational calling to advance the gospel and lead with excellence in all sectors of life.

In 2019, Global Advance launched the David Shibley Institute, a vehicle for imparting a lifetime of insights, wisdom, and anointing to select young nation-builders. This year-long training, which includes a two-week in-person intensive in Dallas, is designed to lift and launch rising global missions leaders to fulfill the Great Commission.
